Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Turkish cooking has grown into one of the hottest contemporary trends in America’s culinary scene. As one might deduce from Turkey’s geographic location, its cooking straddles both Arabic and European traditions. This eye-catching cookbook’s full-color illustrations only enhance the engaging text, which thoughtfully lays out the differences in cooking styles among Turkey’s several regions. Many of the recipes, such as green-lentil pies and various stuffed eggplants and zucchini, will attract vegetarians in particular, but their bold flavors and opulent spicing will give these vegetables the widest possible audience. Meat dishes focus on lamb and beef, with kebabs in the forefront but giving place also to stewed and ground meats. Turkey’s maritime regions offer grilled and baked seafood. Pastry aficionados will immediately recognize the plethora of phyllo-encased meats and vegetables. Recipes call for only a few ingredients not stocked in comprehensive American supermarkets or readily available by mail order. --Mark Knoblauch

Review

'The Turkish Cookbook is a total trove of great ideas - ' Epicurious 'Turkish cuisine is said to be one of four global greats, along with French, Italian and Chinese. It's colorful and healthful: the original Mediterranean diet - So why don't we know it better? ... Nur Ilkin and Sheilah Kaufman have produced a cookbook that might put Turkish food on more tables.' Washington Post --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It is an excellent book with extensive background stories and origins of food. Every recipe was divided to the Turkish regions and the pictures were exotic. Tried many of the recipes and they were consistent.

After a trip to Turkey, and falling for their cuisine, which is sooo good and healthy, I purchased the above Book. It is easy to follow and the recipes make very tasty meals.
It took me a bit to get all the ingredients together, but once they were at the house, there was no stopping me.
One thing necessary is a coal-fired BBQ, without you will not be satisfied with the taste. All of Turkey prepares their meats with charcoal.
Lots of fresh vegetables, simple meats cooked over open fire or stewed, together with bulgur, orzo and many more different grains, make wonderful meals.

many years ago I bought a cookbook in Turkey whilst travelling there...one of my flatmates must have also enjoyed the book, as she took it when she moved out. I missed it and the memories that it evoked...so had to look at replacing it. Whilst this book is not the same as the one that I loved for many years, it has some fabulous recipes that remind me to reminisce - on the great food, flavours and experiences of my time there.
